Itís a good, crisp IPA. Itís not overdone with the hops and it has a pine tree aroma and taste. Good, crisp, and refreshing.

Received in trade. Reviewed from notes. She pours a mostly clear orange color and leaves the same colored body with a one finger white foamy head that died within twenty seconds. Carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace. What lacing there is slides into the body. The smell has a large amount of piney hops up front with a decent backing by some citrusy hops. Malted lightly as it warms. The taste is mainly bitter, but as it warms, a light maltiness comes out, bitter aftertaste. It has a dry piney finish. On the palate, she sits about a light to medium, comes across somewhat sessionable. Carbonation seems a bit smoother than most AIPAís Iíve had, but still has somewhat of a degree of harshness trying to invade my mouth and tongue. Still good for the style and for me. Overall, this is a good AIPA that I would have again, but would either have to move back East or seek again in a trade.

A clear yellow ale with a frothy white head. Surprisingly this is not their hoppiest beer. The body is mild and the finish is clean. Overall a decently balanced beer.

Thin, white head thats short lived with a lil bit of stringy lace hangin on. Murky, orange, amber color. Nose is almost aroma freee, weird. Very faint notes of wort and some grass. Body is surprisingly light for an 8% bruiser. Carbonation is a bit prickly or maybe its an astringency on the palate i,m gettin, lil acidic. Dry malt flavors with some iced tea notes and a bit of earthy, leafy hop notes. Dry finish with a mild bite. Just not a lot happenin here.Need to go back to the drawing board on this one. Props to pinkie for the bomber!

pinkie (427) - New York, USA - JUN 1, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2013 This pours hazy orange with a lot of yeast in suspension. One finger of foam that fell pretty fast. Left some lace, a small ring and a thin layer on top. There was no nose. Honest! I glimpsed a nose then it disappeared. A brief moment of some tropical fruit and some caramel malt. As the beer warmed the fruit peeked out a little but was muddled and not crisp. It was mangoish. The malt became very sugary. Taste is lots of hop oil, resin, bitter thatís just a little biting and sweet, sweet malt. Lotís of malt. So much malt and with all the oil itís heavy. Some nutty flavor as it warmed. It drinks heavy and even sits heavy in the glass. There is no alcohol on the nose but as the beer warms it creeps on to the palate. Not well balanced and the mouthfeel is coarse. Finish is sweet, heavy and dry.

I am really surprised at this beer because the Pale Expedition Ale was fantastic and light. I canít help but wonder if the fact that there is no freshness date means that the fruit and the nose faded. This beer was literally hop oily bitter sitting on top of sugary malt. Unsophisticated and awkward.

Bomber. Poured medium-orange and increasingly chunky as the pours progressed. The aroma picked up orange meat and honey, with floral notes and Pine-sol around.. some black pepper right on the back.. warm feel, and quite malty overall. The flavor opened syrupy, with the same malts as the nose.. moderate black pepper and orange zest bitterness around.. again on the malty side, and it seemed a bit old. Medium-bodied with a decent feel and flow on the palate.. definitely some good stuff in there, and Iíd like to try it fresh on tap.

Bomber via beer world kingston. Moderate initial hop bite. Strangly not much of a hop nose. A darker amber with minimal carbonation. Delicate sandy lacing....seen betrer. Buttery sweet with a bit of hop twang...meh and muddled.
